Edible Mushrooms & Wild Food Forage
Answer the call of nature
Modern foragers find few things more exciting than walking into the forest and locating our own delicious source of wild edibles. Driven by the thrill of the hunt we can walk, hike, bike or drive miles upon miles to locate that special, hidden cache of edible mushrooms or wild foods. Nature’s rewards are always well worth the effort.
As the holidays near, it's time to think about fun-loving gifts for your favorite foragers. We are always on the lookout for cool mushroom-themed stuff from around the interwebs. Mushrooms are the IT thing this year and the list is long - there's no better time to support your favorite local businesses and artisans.
It's not always feasible for most of us to jump on a plane or drive thousands of miles West to chase burn morels! For those of you in other areas of the country, we have some exciting new mapping and research tools that will help you find mushrooms "in your own backyard" so to speak.
Experienced morel hunters, across the entire continental USA (CONUS), know that their beloved Morchella often thrive in disturbed areas – not just in old wildfires! Morels often seek out disturbances that result from forestry management: cuts, thins, controlled burns, road and trail building, power line activity, etc. We have added new maps in our membership […]
This rain map was designed to help foragers get insights into the rain patterns that encourage mushroom flushes - we use it to plan burn morel hunting trips.
